Approaching the Role

with Elena Stamatopoulou




March 2018


In the context of the search of the Theater of Communication , this seminar initially aims at collecting questions and answers on some issues that concern anyone who is attracted by the art of theater.

What is a role?
• How can I approach a role?

On whom does it depend on how I approach the role? From me, from the author,

by the director or someone else?
• What is my
personal goal and how can it work in addition to the goals of others ?
• How can I achieve a
role approach methodology

using all my expressive means as a stimulus ?
• How can I choose the
acting method that suits me best ?

in the overall view of theatrical action? Is there one that meets the requirements or do I have to create my own ?
• How can I inspire collectively and
act collectively

together with other people?
• How can I
work simultaneously personally and collectively?

In short, in this seminar we will try to communicate,

to work together theatrically, each contributing his personal contribution in order to create a show that will be a collective creation.
All participants should have memorized a logical monologue of their personal choice and wear comfortable clothes,

because there will be intense physical activity.
At the end of the seminar, on Sunday at 20:00 we will present the show

which will result from the seminar.
For anyone who wishes, a certificate of participation can be given.
It should be noted that the seminar is addressed to actors and directors, professionals

and amateurs, teachers who want to use the tool of theater

and for those who are interested in getting to know theatrical art in depth.
